Aplat Culinary Totes

The San Francisco based company Aplat makes canvas totes for foodies, chefs, wine enthusiast and bakers alike. Inspired by her lifestyle in France, founder and industrial designer Shujan Bertrand designed the àplat tote to be a simple way of carrying anything from bread and wine to flowers and plates to dinner parties, picnics or home from the market. Bertrand also put a lot of thought into the manufacturing process. For example; the àplat totes are sewn in small batches to avoid overextending the workers, there is zero waste from the yards of fabric they use to make the totes and she’s committed to using local resources, labor and manufacturing to produce them. —JB
